2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
5 foot 6 inches of dynamite, Cohen took the league by storm over the first two games of the 2017 season, catching 16 passes and totaling 201 yards and finding the endzone. Using his dynamic quickness and elite change of direction skills, Cohen was a nightmare for linebackers to cover, and he provided the Bears offense with their lone big play threat. But after Week 3 Cohen's usage inexplicably stopped, and while Chicago was totally devoid of receivers, the diminutive back from North Carolina A&T could only muster five receptions from Weeks 5-10. His usage ticked up slightly in the last quarter of the season, but it was clear the Chicago coaching staff simply couldn't find creative ways to get Cohen in the game plan.

The chatter this offseason couldn't be more different. New head man Matt Nagy has talked Cohen up constantly, comparing him to Tyreek Hill in playmaking ability and potential usage. He's never going to be a 10+ carry guy in the NFL due to his size, but his absolute reception floor is 50, and he's a big play waiting to happen. Cohen makes for a strong FLEX play in PPR leagues, but is more of a RB4/5 in standard leagues as a quality bye week fill-in.

Tarik Cohen figures to stay busy in 2018
"Not accurate" to label him just as a running back
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 13, 5:45 pm

Chicgao Bears
It’s not accurate to list Tarik Cohen as a running back anymore. He requires a slash, as in running back/wide receiver. Nagy has Cohen lining up everywhere to maximize his speed, agility and explosiveness with the ball in his hands. Cohen has welcomed the challenge of learning multiple positions and has done well retaining the details required of each. He’s the Bears’ most dynamic player. (Chicago Tribune - Rich Campbell)

FFToday's Take: The hype on Cohen started early in the offseason and hasn't stopped, although it's not hard to understand why in this case. The pint-sized second-year veteran is a complete mismatch for most linebackers and obviously capable of beating defensive backs with his mind and route-running. Owners looking for a fantasy comp should set their sights on Duke Johnson from last year. Cohen should be well worth a fifth- or sixth-round investment in most PPR leagues.
